Covers for Chemo, Inc.

Patient Leader

Being a Cancer patient, I have chose to pay it forward with my Charity: coversforchemo.com all comfort items are hand delivered to patients for their comfort through their Cancer Journey and its free, we are not a huge Charity paying out to employees, we are just a small few in 8 states who volunteer our time to help others. My Mission it to comfort all patients big and small. a Charity is about giving and so every dollar needs to go to the patients. Not a dime, not 50 cents. My love is my Family, Friends and my Animals, These are the ones by my side helping me through my own Journey. Not everyone is blessed to have the love I do and the support. I'll be a fighter until I die, I have lost loved ones with Cancer and my fight is for them as well as for me. My motto: "Give til' it hurts", It returns to you in life. Fill your heart with love, laughter,and happiness!
